About Us

A Family Business

Duncan’s Creative Kitchens got its start in 1962 as the kitchen department of Duncan Hardware, owned by J.C. Duncan, Sr. in Bedford, Indiana.

In 1973, J.C.’s son, Bill, spun-off the kitchen design business from his parents’ hardware store as Duncan’s Custom Kitchens.  Later, in 1984, he relocated to Florida, where he worked for other kitchen design firms. Eventually, Bill decided to launch Duncan’s Creative Kitchens in Bradenton, Florida in 1987.

Though he had been involved with the business since 2nd grade, Bill’s son, Scott, officially joined the family business in 1993. Scott quickly became the principle designer realizing he would make a better designer than installer. Graduating from Indiana University in 1992, Scott earned his Interior Design license from the State of Florida in 1998 (# ID0004131).

Upon Bill’s retirement in 2000, Scott became the third generation of Duncans to lead the family business.  Scott has also taken an active role in the Central Florida Chapter of National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). He served on the executive committee of the NKBA from 1995 to 2008.
